Well, as I’m sure you all know, whether you like it or not – the Giants won the Superbowl! I can’t remember the last time (well, it was the last time the Giants were in the Superbowl, 2000?) that everyone at our party just watched the game – we all hung around the TV, riveted. The suspense was killing us. With less than a minute to play, they did it. I can’t even describe the level of volume that we had going on here – it was a great game, and a great party. Our oldest couldn’t make it home from school – but we cheered loud enough that I think he might have heard it!
I mananged to get some knitting time in before the guests arrived – and had just started the toe decreases.
And this morning I was able to finish that up in no time.

Yarn by Hazel Knits in Chocolatier colorway
Modifications – I did a short row heel and a regular decreased toe.
I love knitting these – they are just as much fun to knit as Monkey and I can see myself making more. I loved the cleverness of the turned cuff edge. And the yarn is just amazing to work with – I just can’t do the color justice in these photo’s so definitely follow that link – if you love earthones and browns, this yarn is one I don’t think you’ll be able to resist.
It snowed this morning – a beautiful coating of white is on everything right now. The birds are busy at the feeders on the porch. I have the day off – personal day – which I always do after Superbowl Sunday. Takes the stress away, I’m not exhausted the day after party day and I don’t feel like I have to shoo my guests out the door so I can get into bed and begin the recovery! After a bit of party cleanup, I’m heading into the “studio” to pick a new project – I pulled out twinings, but I have to decide the next pair of socks and I’m really wanting to cast on for something “new”. Maybe this, this, or this.
I want to say thanks to you all for leaving such kind comments of sympathy. It has been a bit rough lately and your support means more than I can say. Those comments go a long way.
